Chatty Screenwriters: Sherlock Holmes Sequel Could Be 3D
And 3D Week rolls on! If news about 3D plans for Men in Black 3, The Last Airbender and -- most hilariously -- The Green Hornet didn't satiate your need for a third dimension, maybe Sherlock Holmes will. Hey, nothing screams "overproduced 3D effects!" like the tales of a 19th century detective, right, guys?
According to sequel writers Kieran and Michele Mulroney -- who also wrote and directed the superhero deconstruction, Paper Man -- "Sherlock would be great in 3D ... the wind keeps moving in that direction." Well, naturally. Hollywood would put commercials in 3D if they thought it could make them some extra money. Never mind that the effects-work in director Guy Ritchie's first film were some of the worst ever seen in big budget production; make things more complicated for him!
The possibility of a Sherlock Holmes sequel in 3D comes just one week after the Mulroneys also revealed that Brad Pitt is maybe-kinda-sorta reading their script to see if he wants to play Holmes nemesis, Professor Moriarty. Said Kieran Mulroney: "I hope Brad likes it. Let's leave it at that." These two cannot keep their mouths shut, huh?
